PORT McNEILL—Portside Academy of Performing Arts is taking registration for its 2012-13 performance season.

The dance studio will be open weekdays from 4-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.

The school offers instruction in ballet, jazz/hip-hop, tap, musical theatre and contemporary dance, from pre-school through secondary school ages. Registration fees vary according to class level and number of classes taken.

Portside Academy puts on two public performances each year — the Nutcracker Ballet in the weeks before Christmas, and a spring recital covering all forms of dance. Students may also have the option of performing in festivals and dance competitions down-Island through the Dance Troop program.

For information, call Alana at 250-956-4646, or visit Portside Academy of Performing Arts on Facebook.
